-Gay Activists Storm Church in Michigan

Last Sunday (November 9, 2008) service started out the same way it usually does at Mount Hope Church in Lansing Michigan–announcements, worship songs, and prayers for the sick and for the new new President Elect–then all heck broke loose literally. The attack was summarized in one report:

the Michigan left declared open war on peaceful church goers. They did it with banners, chants, blasphemy, by storming the pulpit, by vandalizing the church facility, by potentially defiling the building with lude, public, sex acts and by intentionally forcing physical confrontations with worshipers.

In another report, it all began outside:

“Outside they were chanting ‘Jesus was a homo’ on a megaphone. They were beating on buckets, presumably to drown out what the pastor was saying inside the church, and carrying an upside-down pink cross. They set off the fire alarm.”

Then apparently more than 20 ‘Bash Back’ activists inside the church began shouting obscenities at church members, throwing confetti and condoms into the pews. The protesters carried a banner that read, “It’s okay to be gay! Bash Back!” and continued to shout out chants: “It’s okay to be gay” and “Jesus was a homo”.

The whole event was recorded on video by the activists and they brought a news reporter with them, hoping to be physically confronted by church members–which did not happen. Here a link to the news report.

The police were called in and for some reason the demonstrators were not arrested.

How did the church respond to the event? After the attack was over, Pastor David Williams led the congregation in prayer for the activists.

Mount Hope Church is not some radical group involved in political activism in any way but a peaceful evangelical Bible believing church:

“whose members provide free 24 hour counseling, prayer lines, catastrophic care for families dealing with medical emergencies, support groups for men, women and children dealing with a wide variety of life’s troubles, crisis intervention, marriage ministries, regular, organized volunteer work in and around the city, missions in dozens of countries across the globe, a construction ministry that has built over 100 churches, schools, orphanages and other projects all over the world and an in-depth prison ministry that reaches out, touches and helps the men and women the rest of society fears the most.  They also teach respect for all human life and the Biblical sanctity of marriage as an institution between one man and one woman.”

Wow! No wonder the church was attacked, they actually help people in the community!             *Top

    This really gets me mad, and I am a born again Christian, but I believe we have a right to righteous indignation. We also have the right to be protected from this kind of terorist activity right here in our own country where religous freedom is everyone’s right. We have a right to follow the Holy Bible and homosexuals have the right to not follow it. They are trying to force their agenda on the entire world, and as Christians we are going to have to take a stand against this. What ever denomination you belong to, Catholic,Prostestant, Lutheran, Baptist, and all Evangelicals what ever the name of your church is, we must stand together. Let us stand with the Mormons and fight for our own rights to stand and defend the Holy name of Jesus. In my church, we can shout and pray louder than they can, and some people who attend church may not be believers, so they might just get more than they would bargain for.

    I believe everyone has a right to be who they choose to be and we all have the right to vote. Because I don’t choose to vote your way or you don’t vote my way should not be a reason for any protest. That’s why we have the privillege to vote. God instituted marriage between man and woman and I believe in the bible, this nation was built according to the word, and I stand on the word of God. If two women want to be together that’s their choice, but to unite under the institution of MARRIAGE is saying that God made a mistake and his word isn’t true. That’s a lie straight from the pit of hell. The Bible is right but somebody is wrong.

    Krystal Nacht? It seems that the adaptation of Nazi tactics is the norm for the left these days. The world has certainly turned upside down. End justifying the means comes from a very dark place.

    I am Gay and believe in God. I know my life sytle is not what the bible says is a good one. anyways, I feel what these people did at that church is wrong in so many ways. If they want there voice heard, there are better ways to do it than storming a church. I will be praying for them.

    Thanks ethan,
    for your comments–I particularly appreciate the idea of praying for them.
    Blessings
